'Scotland Voted Remain, You Weapons-Grade Plum': David Tennant Reads Mean Scottish Tweets About Donald Trump

29 June 2016 3:20 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Donald Trump has become notorious for his disparaging nicknames - but it looks like he's finally met his match in a batch of angry Scots. In a profanity-laden new video from Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, Scottish Doctor Who star David Tennant gives lip service to tweets from fellow Scots who had more than a few choice words for Trump after he visited their country and declared Brexit - which Scotland voted overwhelmingly against - a "fantastic thing." Here are a few of the mean tweets, read with great enthusiasm by Tennant: "They voted Remain you wiggy slice." "Scotland voted Remain, »

Alix is 16, lives her life with high-functioning autism, and wants to have a chat about Doctor Who...

Welcome to Geeks Vs Loneliness. This is our place on the site where we stop for a minute, and try and natter about things that may be affecting you, or people you know. As always, we don’t have magical solutions, much though we wish we had. Furthermore, not everything we write here is going to be helpful to everyone who reads it. But hopefully, across the series, there’s something that can help. If nothing else, know there’s a wonderful community of people in the comments who want to talk and help, and that – for what it’s worth – us behind these words are rooting for you.

Let us stop for some hugs.

Doctor Who: Steven Moffat says he "fumbled" the series 9 opener

“First episodes are tough, and I feel as though I slightly fumbled it last year", says Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat...

Doctor Who series 9 opened with The Magician's Apprentice, an episode that had rather a lot going for it which we reviewed rather positively. But showrunner Steven Moffat - who penned the episode - isn't happy with how this one turned out.

Moffat has told Doctor Who Magazine that, “First episodes are tough, and I feel as though I slightly fumbled it last year by not having a ‘new thing’ in The Magician’s Apprentice.”

The Moff added: “It was the same Doctor, same companion… You want to persuade people to tune in because a brand new thing is happening.”

Mr Moffat is keen to make sure this doesn't happen again. “We’ll introduce [the new companion, Bill] in the first episode of 2017, and she’ll run through that series”, he explained. »

Doctor Who's Christopher Eccleston Apologizes for Bullying Classmate in His Youth: 'It's Been a Great Shame'

28 June 2016 3:35 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

[Youtube "JVNLDB6VDQ4"] Doctor Who star Christopher Eccleston is apologizing for bullying a classmate when they were both at school together. The star got emotional during an interview with Piers Morgan on Good Morning Britain as he recounted his story. "It was a very sensitive boy in my class. At break time I used to make him give me some of his crisps. I did it a few times and I'm very, very ashamed of it," he said. Eccleston, 52, said said before he became a bully, he himself was the victim of bullying - and acknowledged that might have influenced him to act out. »

Watch David Tennant Read Hilarious Tweets at Trump on 'Samantha Bee'

28 June 2016 7:41 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Samantha Bee spoke about the U.K.'s decision to leave the European Union. The Full Frontal host had particularly sharp words for Nigel Farage, a champion of the Brexit cause who backpedaled on many of his party's promises – especially a £350 million funding increase for the U.K.'s healthcare system, NHS – as soon as victory was assured.

"While millions of Brits were frantically Googling, 'How do you spell E.U.?' or just weeping uncontrollably," Bee quipped, "Nigel Farage – leader of the right wing U.K. Independence Party, champion of the anti-Europe movement, »

David Tennant reads Twitter insults to Donald Trump on 'Full Frontal'

28 June 2016 6:45 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Last night, Samantha Bee dedicated a portion of Full Frontal With Samantha Bee to explaining what's happening in the U.K. and to lay into the countries who voted to leave the E.U. ("Screwing over the rest of the world by voting stupidly? That's our job!") It's a good follow-up to John Oliver's Brexit segment, combining laughs with intelligence. Oh, and a little appearance from David Tennant. Bee also touched upon Trump's misinformed Brexit remarks (and warned the U.S. not to make the similar voting mistakes come November) about Scotland which prompted loads of responses from Scotland residents. To get the full effect of the creative insults, Doctor Who's David Tennant read them in his Scottish brogue. You can watch it below. »

Piers Wenger appointed BBC head of drama

28 June 2016 6:40 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Channel 4 head of drama Piers Wenger has been appointed BBC director of drama commissioning after four years at the ad-supported broadcaster.

He will take up the new role in the autumn, replacing independent drama commissioning editor Lucy Richer who has been acting BBC drama boss since Polly Hill’s departure to ITV earlier this year.

Wenger will be replaced at C4 by deputy head of drama Beth Willis.

Wenger joined Channel 4 in 2012 having previously been head of drama at BBC Wales and an executive producer on the reboot of Doctor Who, in which he cast Matt Smith as the lead role.

He was responsible for commissioning major C4 drama series over the past four years, including Indian Summers, Paul Abbott’s No Offence and Humans.

Indian Summers recorded the highest-ever overnight in 20 years for a C4 drama last year and Humans went onto break that record later in 2015.

The Living And The Dead episode 1 review

Episode one of handsome new BBC supernatural period drama The Living And The Dead feat. Colin Morgan ends on a gripping hook…

This review contains episode 1 spoilers.

Ashley Pharoah, the creator of The Living And The Dead, made his name writing genre TV with a twist. He and Matthew Graham added a time travel mystery to the police procedural in Life On Mars and Ashes To Ashes, then spliced the supernatural with court drama in Eternal Law.

Pharoah’s new series The Living And The Dead plays the same game. It’s a traditional Victorian ghost story with Something Else Going On. Two events in the first episode alert viewers to this fact – the vapour trail of a modern airplane in the 1894 Somerset sky and the closing sight of a twenty-first century woman, iPad in hand, walking around the nineteenth-century farmhouse in which the story is set. »

Wenger, who starts at the BBC in the fall, has been Channel 4’s drama chief since 2012, commissioning original scripted drama across both Channel 4 and its youth-skewed channel, E4. He has broadened the range of drama on the main channel and shifted the emphasis to include more returning series.

Marc Alan Fishman: Legends(ish) of Tomorrow(sorta)

25 June 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, upon being announced, caught me dumbfounded. Hot on the heels of The Flash, which spun out from Arrow, this new time-hopping romp through the unknown left me in between diametric emotional states. The first was joyful confusion. Where all current Dcu-tv joints were clearly single-hero driven vehicles (The Flash, Arrow, Supergirl… and Gotham, sorta), here was something decidedly team-based… and a large team to boot.

This lead straight to the antithetical emotion: crippling fear. With nine “leads” – all of whom were D-Listers or complete canonical lies – and a show built around time periods only the most pernicious perusers of prose would recognize, I was afraid it was all too much too soon.

I was both right and wrong about it. Natch.

When I last talked about the show there were far too many variables being hammered into submission to draw final conclusions. But I was »

Peter Capaldi gives 6-year-old advice on getting a job on 'Doctor Who'

24 June 2016 3:20 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Peter Capaldi's Doctor is a lovable curmudgeon. Luckily the Doctor Who star in real life is just plain lovable as a new video of him giving job advice to a young fan proves. Did I mention the little fan is wearing a fez? Zap2It spotted the video the child's mom (?) Ashley Rasmussen posted after they attended Dallas Comic Con recently. After overcoming some nerves, the young fan says, "When I grow up I want to be a part of Doctor Who. What should I do to get there?" Watch how Capaldi responded. "Well you’re doing the right thing by coming here," Capaldi answered. "You’ve got to be nice to your mum. You’ve got to be kind to people. You’ve got to work hard, and make the very best of the gifts that you have, of your talents, and take them out into the world. »
